VIDEO PREMIERE FOR “ST. SEBASTIAN” NOW LIVE AT STEREOGUM
DEBUT ALBUM YEAH YOU, AND I OUT NOW VIA DEP RECORDS
Sam Patch—the new project by Tim Kingsbury of Arcade Fire—proudly unveils the video for “St. Sebastian”, off the debut album Yeah You, and I out now on Dep Records.
Directed by Brantley Gutierrez and produced by Kyle Schember, the video follows a man’s ordinary day at the office juxtaposed with surreal underwater scenes and elegant synchronized swimmers. The images brilliantly complement the song and album’s exploration of what motivates us in our lives and how we choose to distract ourselves from who we we really are.
Speaking about the video Tim Kingsbury says:
“I had the idea to do a video for this song that was set underwater. I liked the idea of somebody being in a normal, everyday and mundane situation but totally oblivious to the fact that they were underwater. I kind of knew that it would be a challenging thing to do but Brantley and Kyle really helped make it real. Brantley finessed and evolved the concept and had the idea to have the swimmers in it and I think that really pushed it in to a fun and beautiful place. I think Brantley, Kyle and everyone else involved really did a great job.”
